healthy san francisco and the health care security ordinance is still really important even with obama care, so locally under the health care security ordinance, the minimum workers is 20 but if the ordinance was replaced by the affordable care act, the minimum would be raised to 50. this is important because lez people would be covered or get health care and businesses and instead businesses should also share the profits by helping the workers get health care. the health care security ordinance would secure that more workers would get health care and health care is the human right and everyone should have the right to access health care regardless of their income. thank you. >> thank you. i'm going to call a few more names.
